          Just blah. Doesn't stay on very long, after a while it gets sort of blotchy. The drug store stuff I was using before this gave me better wear. Will use until it's gone, but won't buy again. Very lightweight though, would be good for someone who doesn't have a lot of blemishes or imperfections.

                I really like this foundation. I just wish it would stay on a bit longer. I always to re reaply before going out at night. Just to feel like I have a little more coverage. It does blend well and it feels amazing on while it lasts

                  I used High Definition Health FX foundation in Light L3 for years and it seems to be discontinued. The website suggested I look at this product. Is it comparable coverage? I'm concerned that the SPF will cause the white face flash that the Healthy FX did not. I'm also curious about which shade would be comparable. Thanks!

                    This foundation provides buildable sheer-to-medium coverage. All Smashbox products are photo-tested in a professional studio environment to ensure their finishes photograph beautifully (no "flashback" effect).

                    Use our handy shade conversion chart to determine your best shade match:

                  I really like the smashbox BB cream, but I want something with just a little more coverage for events, date nights, and etcetera. I wear the light/medium in the BB cream and that is a pretty close match to my skin tone. So, what would be my best match for the Liquid Halo HD Foundation Broad Spectrum?
